Rescuers Lower Ladder to Cubs Trapped in Dumpster

Rescuers Lower Ladder to Cubs Trapped in Dumpster

Three black bear cubs were rescued from a dumpster in Ruidoso, New Mexico, by residents Shirley and Tom Schenk. The couple heard the bears crying during the night and came to their rescue at sunrise.  You’ll love this happy ending as the cubs reunite with their worried mama.
